Fiber Art

Sun., 4 Nov., 10 a.m., Penrose Guest Hospitality Suite
Each guest will select a variety of colors from a huge assortment of wool fibers. These colorful wool fibers are pulled, by the guest, into various shapes and dimensions, positioned on a backing and ironed to fuse them into place. This creates a one-of-a-kind piece of art that can be inserted into a cardboard frame to create a card to send to a loved one or friend or taken home and framed.
